Oshin: the Japanese drama that gripped the world

Before the craze of Korean dramas, Oshin was the one who ruled on Japan and 60 other countries and stood as an Asian Global Blockbuster.

The story revolves around a girl who grew up in poverty in the 1900s and became a supermarket chain patron despite many tragedies. Many people around the country loved the Drama and showered their love to the cast and the writer.

Sorrowly, its screenwriter Sugako Hashida died in April of lymphoma at the age of 95.

Many fans around the world paid a nostalgic tribute to it in recent weeks.

In China, users of the Weibo microblogging platform stated that Oshil helped them introduce the Japanese Disturbance.

In Taiwan, Ms. Hashida’s death was reported as breaking and drastic news; many of her fans got very sad.

Oshin was debuted in April 1983 as a typical family drama series directed by Shin Togashi, which used to target housewives.
But it became a massive hit in significantly less time in Japan, which was at the time in the violent pain of a materialistic “bubble economy.”

According to a Japanese journalist, Oshin ‘s history of poverty was much-loved in the era of “glory, excess and ostentatious consumption.”

According to the professor of communication at the University of Texas at El Paso, Dr. Arvind Singhal, Oshin marks the global success causes of hit values of love, sacrifice, endurance, and forgiveness.

Oshin represents strength and tenacity in the face of difficulties.

Oshin also reversed the anti-Japanese image of the world.

Viewers in Thailand and Indonesia changed their Japanese “in cold blood” view after watching the series, said Dr. Singhal.

And the story of Oshin is so inspirational that he also thinks that the younger generation should watch and learn something from Oshin. They should face their problems head-on – there is nothing that cannot be solved in this world.
